    Under Schumer’s measure, those who aren’t law enforcement would need to get a green light from the FBI to get body armor– and show a reason why they need it. (Photo: Chris Eger/Guns.com)Legislation promised in the U.S. Senate would make the legal sale of body armor a “may issue” process signed off on by federal law enforcement. U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-NY, announced his legislation on Sunday to require FBI permission before anyone except law enforcement could buy what he termed “sophisticated body armor,” setting a bar that would require a clear purpose, such as an occupational requirement, for the...

    President Trump announced Thursday evening that he is nominating Eugene Scalia, the son of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, to be the new Secretary of Labor. “I am pleased to announce that it is my intention to nominate Gene Scalia as the new Secretary of Labor. Gene has led a life of great success in the legal and labor field and is highly respected not only as a lawyer, but as a lawyer with great experience working with labor and everyone else,” he tweeted. “He will be a great member of an Administration that has done more in the...

    President Trump announced late Wednesday night he will give the State of the Union Address when the government shutdown comes to an end. As the Shutdown was going on, Nancy Pelosi asked me to give the State of the Union Address. I agreed. She then changed her mind because of the Shutdown, suggesting a later date. This is her prerogative - I will do the Address when the Shutdown is over. I am not looking for an....— Donald J.

    With the rejection of President Trump’s latest border security compromise Democrats have rejected security for Americans on many different levels. This set of rejections adds to the growing list of recent weeks in which nearly every decision they make works against the citizens of the United States. Even after repeated compromises (President Trump moving to a “steel slat” and away from a “wall”) and self-admissions of a barrier’s effectiveness (House Majority Leader Hoyer confessing “well of course walls work,”) they continue to harbor anti-American values and sentiment in their approach towards the current crisis. Thus far they have rejected the...

    RUSH: Do any of you have the sense that President Trump is winning this shutdown battle with Chuck and Nancy? I do. I have the sense that he’s winning this thing big time. By winning it big time I’m talking about with the American people. And I think Chuck and Nancy and the Democrats are beginning to look the way we see them to a lot of people. And in fact there are some Democrats now — there’s a break in the Democrat wall around their party. There are five or six Democrats, elected Democrats in Washington who are now...

    Last night, President Trump and the Democratic leaders of each house of Congress addressed the American people in primetime.  Almost nothing new emerged from the nationally-televised exchange, as the partial government shutdown appears destined to stretch on indefinitely.  Each side more or less reiterated the points they've been making ad nauseam, blaming one another for the ongoing impasse.  A few thoughts:(1) The president, thankfully, did not invoke emergency powers, an idea he and his team had floated in recent days.  If anything, his decision not to travel this dangerous route was the biggest news of the night.  In my preview...

    We all knew Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Chuck Schumer's rebuttal to President Donald Trump's primetime address would be nothing but a joke. None of us really knew just how bad it would truly be though. Naturally, after watching the train wreck occur, Americans – primarily conservatives – took to Twitter to mock the duo. After all, their address was one of the most awkward addresses we've ever seen.

    For the past five days, the display of the stupidity in the elected bodies of Congress has been on full display. For the past five days, Americans have had to put up with politically framed speeches and explanations of why this shutdown had to happen and whose fault it truly is. For the past five days the amount of grandstanding “on principle” has made many feel that no one in Washington DC will ever listen to the people ever again. However for the past five days—outside of DC—another story began to be told. For the past five days, more than...

    Recently, U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor of Texas struck down the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a ObamaCare) on the grounds that since the law’s “tax” was currently at zero it was now unconstitutional. Fresh from whining about it on Sunday Today, moderator Chuck Todd grilled Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer during Meet the Press because he and other Democrats confirmed the Judge after President George W. Bush nominated him back in 2007. Todd became indignant when he pounced on Schumer with a quote from his former staffer Brian Fallon, who was having a conniption on Twitter because of the ruling: Let...

    Contrary to liberal media reporting, the Oval Office meeting with President Trump, Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was a win for Trump, both in substance and in tone. The meeting gave people an opportunity to see who fears transparency, who's misrepresenting his/her position and who is being the aggressor in the border debate, and it's not Donald Trump. Instead of listening to the media's version, watch the video. President Trump set the tone of the meeting, and it was decidedly cordial, saying it was a great honor to have Pelosi and Schumer there and...

    In an effort to push back on the Democrats’ blue wave plans next month, we’re seeing plenty of Republicans running against the increasingly divisive and destructive trend of political correctness and thought police tactics of liberals. It’s a message that seems to be getting some traction in swing districts, particularly in California and Oregon where voters of all stripes are feeling the impact of feel-good, socialist theories being enshrined in their state’s laws. But one person I didn’t expect to be jumping on the bandwagon was New York Democratic Senator (and Senate Minority Leader) Chuck Schumer. Yet during a panel...

    Democrats stand to make gains in the upcoming midterm elections -- but their cockiness about winning sweeping victories has reportedly become more restrained in recent days, thanks to tightening generic ballot polling and improved presidential approval numbers.  CNN's newest national survey shows most Americans are pleased with the general state of the country, with Democrats' 2018 advantage down to just three points (as opposed to 16 points in the same series several months ago).  Reuters' national data shows Democrats' lead whittled down to one measly point, well within the margin of error.  At the beginning of the year, 'Chuck and...

    Democrats' acknowledgement of the U.S. embassy opening in Jerusalem Monday was virtually non-existent. The Times of Israel reported that no Democratic members of Congress attended the ceremony.Former Sen. Joe Lieberman, told them he was “surprised” that “no sitting legislators from his former party were in Jerusalem for the embassy dedication.”“I hope that the Democratic members had [scheduling] conflicts and they had to be somewhere else,” he said. “I hope that they don’t see this as some kind of pro-Trump rally in Jerusalem. It’s not. Its a pro-US-Israel friendship-partnership-alliance rally. And it’s celebrating the strength of our relationship, which has been...

    Well, when you’re backed into a corner, there really is nowhere to go. That’s where the Democrats are on this tax bill. Even after they shut down the government over illegal aliens, companies continued to signal their intention to dole out bonuses to their workers. In all, over 250 companies have given out bonuses to over three million workers. Bonuses have ranged from $1,000 to $3,000 depending on the company. The tax plan has become more popular as well. So, what do Democrats do now? Well, just marginalize $1,000+ bonuses as “crumbs.”Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has done it, with Rep....

    The White House on Sunday accused Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer of suffering from a “hazy” memory after he blamed President Trump for passing up a deal to fund a border wall and avert the current government shutdown. “Senator Schumer’s memory is hazy because his account of Friday’s meeting is false,” said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. ~snip~ “The president’s position is clear: We will not negotiate on the status of unlawful immigrants while Senator Schumer and the Democrats hold the government for millions of Americans and our troops hostage,” said Mrs. Sanders.

    Congress opened its second day under the government shutdown Sunday with a prayer from the chaplain labeling the entire thing a miscalculation and pleading for sanity to prevail. Barry Black, a former Navy admiral and longtime chaplain, warned Congress might “reap the whirlwind” from the shutdown if they don’t find a way to cooperate. “Discontinue the blame game,” he urged them. The partial shutdown hasn’t had a deep impact yet, with it taking effect over a weekend. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warned that it will hit Monday, when the federal workforce would normally return to work.

    This week, the government will run out of money on Friday, January 19. Once the clock strikes midnight, the government could be shut down, unless a deal over immigration is hashed out this week. Earlier this month, there was some hope. President Trump met with congressional leaders from both parties and allowed the cameras to capture the negotiation process for an extended period of time. There seemed to be consensus over border security and DACA recipients. How to move forward on the policy angle remained to be seen. Yes, there was an ulterior motive with that as well; Trump wanted...
